[image]Hurricane Emily - NASA image provided courtesy of Jeff Schmaltz, team.
Hurricane Emily was re-intensifying over the Gulf of Mexico on July 19, 2005, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image. The image shows the storm at 14:20 p.m. local time in Cancun, Mexico, roughly one day after Emily returned to open waters. At this time, the storm was a Category 1 storm with winds of 150 kilometers per hour (85 knots), slightly stronger than when it first moved off the Yucatan Peninsula the day before...

The twelfth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season—Tropical Storm Larry—formed in the Gulf of Mexico, on Oct. 1, 2003, due west of the Yucatan Peninsula. The storm gained in intensity in its first 24 hours so that on Oct. 2 it contained maximum sustained winds of 120 km (75 miles) per hour. Hemmed in between two high-pressure ridges, Larry has been tracking slowly southward toward Mexico...

[image]Fires in the Yucatan and Central America - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained courtesy of the team.
Fires on the Yucatan Peninsula cast a pall of smoke over the Gulf of Mexico on May 8, 2006, veiling its dark blue waters with a dingy white haze. The fires have been marked with red in this photo-like image, taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. Although a dense cluster of fires on the eastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula is producing a thick cloud of smoke, much of the haze appears to be coming from fires burning throughout southern Mexic...

The distinct and vibrant colors seen in this image of South Florida are caused by sedimentation.
